HuffPo's Obama Piece Illegal Ad?

My Position On FISA

A dollar figure could be attached to this.

AP: John F'ing Kerry Comedian

I didn't know that the AP had a sense of humor nor did I know that Kerry was doing stand up.

Kerry says McCain lacks

I'm not sure how a man who lied about his fellow soldiers, wooed a dead Republican's wife to get his fortune and is criminally effete judges others accurately, but Kerry passing judgement on McCain is hilarious.

AP: Bush Goofing Off Again

Bush, Fukuda lay out

I hope they used sun screen.

AP: Congress Finished

Congress begins final summer

Is it really over? I'm at a loss for more than 4 words.

AP: Congress Is Greedy

Congress ready to take

But is this really news?

Americans Practicing What Makes America Great

Many times it is the quiet man that is heard the loudest.

Getting to know John McCain
Mr. Day relayed to me one of the stories Americans should hear. It involves what happened to him after escaping from a North Vietnamese prison during the war. When he was recaptured, a Vietnamese captor broke his arm and said, "I told you I would make you a cripple."

The break was designed to shatter Mr. Day's will. He had survived in prison on the hope that one day he would return to the United States and be able to fly again. To kill that hope, the Vietnamese left part of a bone sticking out of hishim after escaping from a North Vietnamese prison during the war. When he was recaptured, a Vietnamese captor broke his arm and said, "I told you I would make you a cr arm, and put him in a misshapen cast. This was done so that the arm would heal at "a goofy angle," as Mr. Day explained. Had it done so, he never would have flown again.

But it didn't heal that way because of John McCain. Risking severe punishment, Messrs. McCain and Day collected pieces of bamboo in the prison courtyard to use as a splint. Mr. McCain put Mr. Day on the floor of their cell and, using his foot, jerked the broken bone into place. Then, using strips from the bandage on his own wounded leg and the bamboo, he put Mr. Day's splint in place.

Another story I heard over dinner with the Days involved Mr. McCain serving as one of the three chaplains for his fellow prisoners. At one point, after being shuttled among different prisons, Mr. Day had found himself as the most senior officer at the Hanoi Hilton. So he tapped Mr. McCain to help administer religious services to the other prisoners.

Today, Mr. Day, a very active 83, still vividly recalls Mr. McCain's sermons. "He remembered the Episcopal liturgy," Mr. Day says, "and sounded like a bona fide preacher." One of Mr. McCain's first sermons took as its text Luke 20:25 and Matthew 22:21, "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and unto God what is God's." Mr. McCain said he and his fellow prisoners shouldn't ask God to free them, but to help them become the best people they could be while serving as POWs. It was Caesar who put them in prison and Caesar who would get them out. Their task was to act with honor.

Unlike many, McCain does not toot his own horn, which is admirable, so we must do it for him, which is necessary because the media will attempt to hide this side of McCain.
